Despite Belgium’s best efforts to shake things up, Ireland’s Nicky Byrne is your favourite Eurovision 2016 act for a second week. Of the 1,554 votes cast since Monday 18 January, the “Sunlight” singer earned 688, or roughly 43%. That’s down from the 762 votes he received last week, but then that’s to be expected since there are more acts to choose from.

Laura Tesoro’s victory in Belgium has ruffled many feathers (including Kate Ryan’s), but nonetheless her entry “What’s The Pressure” debuts at number two on our poll, picking up a respectable 482 votes (31%). Could the release of the studio version help her rise up the rankings next time?

Last but not least, we have Albania’s Eneda Tarifa. Laura asks what’s the pressure, perhaps Eneda can give us the answer. That’s not to say “Përrallë” (Fairytale) fared particularly badly in this weeks poll. It still managed to get a respectable 404 votes or just over 25% of all votes cast. And it would be foolish to write off “Përrallë” (Fairytale) before we hear the promised revamp.
